Heaton Library Visit – Year 2
Year 2 children were given a fantastic opportunity to visit an integral part of the local community today – the local library! The children had the chance to look at areas of the library and how to locate books – looking specifically at fiction and non-fiction areas, scanning books out, looking for authors and book titles, and how to care for the library by putting books back in the right place with the spine visible for other people. We discussed the importance of reading the blurb and reading the book to see if it’s an appropriate level.
We signed up the Year 2 class and all children were able to pick their own book and scan it out.
* Please note, children will be keeping their books at school.
